Today’s Great Mate Debate is from Mark and Lyndsey. They need you to pick a side and end a disagreement. Mark and Lyndsey have a two-year-old daughter, Paisley, who Mark’s mom babysits while Mark and Lyndsey are at work. Paisley is not allowed in a dining room after being caught in the room three times her grandma spanked her and sat her in time out for not obeying. When Lyndsey went to pick Paisley up, the Mark’s mom told her what happened. Lyndsey is furious because she and Mark don’t believe in spanking as a punishment. She no longer wants Paisley to be alone with Mark’s mom, although Mark doesn’t believe in spanking as a form of discipline, he believes Lyndsey is over reacting. Lyndsey wants to send Paisley to another day-care but Mark doesn’t think it’s a big deal.


Should grandparents be allowed to discipline their grandchildren? Whose side are you on?
